8 good things to do in the triad: June 10-16 | Business


1) Our time – June 10, 2021 – The Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County and Triad Cultural Arts will present “Our Time: A Conversation in Black and White,” a new play by Lynn Felder, June 10-12 at 7:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. on June 12 at the Reynolds Place Theater at the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts, 251 N. Spruce St. Tickets are free with online registration required at www.intohearts.org, and donations will be accepted. “Our Time” is supported, in part, by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation through the Artists Thrive initiative.

A multimedia theatrical event, the three-character one-act play, a workshop production, takes place in Winston-Salem after a Black Lives Matter rally and a Sons of the Confederacy protest against the removal of a Confederate monument. Two men, one black and one white, are reluctantly drawn into a conversation by an old hippie as they all wait for their rides to bring them home. There will be a discussion with the cast, crew and audience after each performance. Photographs by Owens Daniels of the BLM marches and Sons of Confederation protests are used in the stage design.
